Shock, anger over 15-y-o girl's death
RESIDENTS of St John's Road, Spanish Town, St Catherine, were yesterday morning still expressing anger and shock at the death of a 15-year-old girl whose body was found inside a house in the community Wednesday night.
"We are calling on the police to step up their probe into the incident as we are all in shock," said the girl's grandmother, Janice Lewin.
"She was a humble and jovial person," added Lewin, her pain obvious.
Yesterday, the police said they wanted to speak to a 25-year-old man who is reported to be the boyfriend of the girl, who was identified as Rachael Robinson.
The St Catherine North Police said that a visitor to the house discovered the body of the teen about 7:00 pm and raised an alarm.
"Police are at this time awaiting a post-mortem to determine the cause of death," head of St Catherine North Police Division Anthony Castelle said.
Police say, while they continue to search for clues, they were not ruling out foul play.
The residents said they believe Robinson was beaten and strangled.
